Using Rev in autoEdit

  1. When choosing Rev as a transcription option, you'll be prompted to add the order number for the transcription.

  2. You also need to add the original file you'd like to reconnect with the transcription.

This allows Rev to get informations about the original media, so that when you export an EDL from autoEdit, you can reconnect to the right source footage in your video editing software of choice.

Rev Order number, media files and transcriptions

If you have submit multiple media per one order.

If there are multiple transcriptions associated with one order, autoEdit, in current implementation, will only retrieve the first one.

The workaround is to keep one media file per order, for now.

Rev and autoEdit

Note that autoEdit, for simplicity in the current implementation, does not let you submit an order to Rev through the app. You'd have to submit your transcriptions orders through the Rev website, and then use the order number to add it to autoEdit, when Rev notifies you that the transcription is ready.

Now you are ready to chose Rev as an option when adding a new transcription. Check out the transcribing section of the user manual to see how to do that.
